Ellicott City Historic District is a national historic district in Ellicott City, Howard County, Maryland. The Ellicott City Station is a National Historic Landmark located within the district. The district encompasses a predominantly 19th century mill town whose origins date to 1772, including more than 200 18th- and 19th-century buildings.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1] The 2016 Maryland flood severely impacted the historic district on July 30, 2016, as did another flood on May 27, 2018.[3]

It includes the Saint Paul Catholic Church, a church where Babe Ruth got married.[4]
